CALGARY

HBR Calgary RLheader 1

I'm sad to say that I have to cancel this years event.  I had hoped that after so much time away from live events, there would be a strong appetite for racing.  Unfortunately we do not have a large enough field to make the event viable. 


Start planning for the annual Calgary Heartbeat Run in support of the Calgary Health Trust and Libin Cardiovascular Institute of Alberta!
Come out on September 20, 2020 and participate in the 10km run or 5km Run/Walk!

This scenic course starts and finishes in the new community of Fish Creek Exchange!
Don't miss out on a great fall day where you will run in Fish Creek Provincial Park and the breath-taking views of trees turning colour and leaves falling.

COVID GUIDELINES

As we all know, we have a ‘new normal’ and are still getting used to protocol.  We are excited to be able to host one of the first events in Calgary - and Alberta, but are also concerned about your safety.  
This is a baby-step towards what hopefully will be a return to racing, in whatever format that may be.  Be patient. Be kind to one another, and please follow the all stated rules.
